The Guild offers a broad range of free arts education programming throughout the year to ensure that everyone has access to the arts. These include:
The Guild’s Inspiration Station is a mobile arts making cart that travels around Northfield providing free hands-on arts making activities for people of all ages. Inspiration Station travels to parks, the library, civic events and public spaces across our community, ensuring everyone can have access to the arts.
Look for us at the Pride in the Park collaborative celebration with the Northfield Public Library, June 5th from 1-4 pm in Central Park in Northfield. Come make “Pom-Poms for Pride” with us as we celebrate our beautifully diverse community!
Our Open Art program offers free drop in art making sessions for youth and their families several times per year in our Art Studio. Open Art features an engaging slate of hands-on art making activities that change each month, including drawing, painting, collage, printmaking, sculpture, clay and multi-media work.
Virtual Art Making – Art@Home: Education and Outreach Coordinator Jennie Eubank has been creating instructional videos to follow along and make your own at-home art projects. Check out the playlist of art making videos on YouTube, with new videos being added on a regular basis!
